College Level Learning Courses (CLLC)

While CCAD’s participation in College Credit Plus is evaluated, CCAD will offer BFA classes to non-degree seeking students who are currently enrolled in high school. Students choosing to enroll in classes for the 2015-16 academic year, will be granted a 50% tuition waiver but will be responsible for all fees and supplies required for their coursework.

To apply, students should submit their inquiry through SlideRoom including

  • Letter of Recommendation
  • Personal Statement of Interest

Additionally, students should submit the following information directly to the admissions office:

  • HS Transcript with a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA
  • Signed approval from Guardian and HS Administrator – approval form may be downloaded here.

Deadlines for application:

  • Fall 2015 - Monday, August 3
  • Spring 2016 - Monday, December 7

Within 10 days of classes starting, CCAD will send the student’s enrollment verification to their home school in consideration of high school credit; and send final transcripts at the end of each semester. 

What Courses Can I Take?

In CLLC, you start by taking two of the same core classes that all incoming freshmen take at CCAD: Drawing Methods I and Visual Literacy I.

After that, you can choose introductory survey classes from any of CCAD’s majors. Your CLLC counselor at CCAD will help you choose classes to fit your interests and your schedule.

In Addition to the Online Application:

Applicants may choose to share 3-4 pieces of their art or design work. This is not required but may present a compelling picture of their potential. Work should demonstrate ability in your expected field of study while highlighting your technique, concept, risk-taking, and dedication.

Other Items for Consideration:

  • CCAD will loan textbooks and Wacom tablets for students choosing to abide by a borrowing agreement.
  • The student will be responsible for their own laptop as set by the technology requirements for incoming freshmen.
  • CCAD will not provide access to GoMail or the emergency notification system.
  • CCAD will provide login access to Digication and Self-Service.
  • All prerequisites and permissions must be obtained before the student registers for class. This may include review of student’s previous work by CCAD staff.
